This section describes how to find and complete several pieces of additional content available through Clan Quest Mod.
The humanity system has changed as well. Now it’s based on your current humanity as well as whatever heinous act you commit. In short, you don’t get punished for committing minor sins when you’re already a monster. In the vanilla version of the game, it wasn’t possible to have your humanity fall below three, but that’s no longer the case. Each misdeed has a “sin” level, and if that sin level is less than your current humanity, only then do you lose a dot in humanity. The sins are ranked (roughly) as follows:
|9||Minor selfish acts|
|8||Injury to another (accidental or otherwise)|
|6||Accidental violation (drinking a vessel dry out of starvation)|
|5||Intentional property damage|
|4||Impassioned violation (manslaughter, killing a vessel in frenzy)|
|3||Planned violation (outright murder, savored exsanguination)|
|2||Casual violation (thoughtless killing, feeding past satiation)|
|1||Utter perversion or heinous acts|
|0||No moral values. Must sleep, must feed, must kill|
All that said, any good deed is good for your soul and will restore a dot in humanity. But it cannot be raised beyond your humanity pool level, which starts at 10 and is reduced by 1 every time you commit diablerie.
Diablerie on the other hand will always take a piece of your soul and cause you to lose a dot in humanity no matter what. This means that your humanity can actually be reduced to zero. If that happens, the next time you visit one of the city hubs you’ll instead be treated to a cutscene witnessing the last minutes of your character’s life, who is now reduced to a mindless beast.
To Build a Better Mouse Trap (Warrens Shortcut)
Most veteran Bloodlines players agree that the warrens, i.e. the sewer levels after the Kings’ Way mission, is the worst part of the game. This shortcut allows you to skip that part of the game — although it still takes some work.
After fighting Andrei in the basement of the mansion, fight your way through the first level of the warrens until you get to a corridor with a door leading out of the sewers and back to the main Hollywood hub. From there, get in the cab and head back to Santa Monica to talk to Bertram Tung.
When you find him in his tanker, tell him about the Tzimisce attacking the Nosferatu. If you’re persuasive enough you’ll make an impression on him, but he’ll still pretend like he doesn’t care. Leave the tanker and hide somewhere outside. You want to wait for him to leave the tanker and head to the sewer opening nearby, by the bail bonds. He’ll appear differently though, as he’s using the powers of Obfuscate. Don’t let him see you.
Follow Bertram into the sewer, and you’ll automatically be taken to the Hollywood sewers. Continue following him and he’ll lead you through the sewers and to the cemetery. Enter the cemetery behind him.
He’ll then lead you through the cemetery and eventually to the mausoleum, at which point he’ll vanish. The door to the mausoleum will open for you, too, however and you can enter the Nosferatu hideout without fighting all the Tzimisce monsters.
If at any point Bertram sees you, you’ll fail the quest and have to go complete the warrens the normal way.
If you’re a Nosferatu player, you can skip all the tailing and he’ll tell you exactly where to go.
Of course, if you agree to join Andrei in the Sabbat, that’s another way to skip most of the warrens map.
The tailing sequences can take awhile, too, but truthfully, if you know where to go, you can just go do something else while you wait for Bertram to reach the destination on each map.
Hacking the Fu Syndicate
Another part of the game that can be frustrating is freeing Barabus from the Fu Syndicate, but CQM allows for an alternative solution to this quest in the form of a social engineering puzzle. You have to collect clues from around the area and use the phone to trick the staff into letting you into their system. Here’s how to do it:
After you leave Glaze and have found out where Barabus is being kept, go inside the Fu Syndicate building but go behind the desk and find a post it note stuck to the security desk that has a four digit number on it.
Next leave the building and go to the dumpster in the parking lot besides the building. You should be able to dig through the dumpster by clicking a part of it. This will drop some pieces of paper on the ground. Look at each piece of paper. It looks like a series of unrelated notes but it will tell you the IT support phone number as well as the voice mail extensions for two members of the security staff.
Now go to the payphone outside the Fu Syndicate building and you should be able to pick up the phone and call a couple of different numbers. First call the security line and see what they say. They will want your employee ID.
Hang up and call the first phone number extension. It will be one of the security employee’s voice mail. Enter the code that you found behind the desk. Listen to both the voice mail messages.
Now hang up and call the second phone number extension. You’ll get the other security guard. Pretend you’re the first guy you called and use the information you got from his voice mail to trick the person you’re talking to now. If you have high Obfuscate you don’t need to trick him, you can just change how your voice sounds. Next, using a high persuasion score, you must convince him to give you your employee ID.
Once you have that information, call back the IT support phone number and tell them your employee ID. Have them reset your password to ‘sunrise’.
Now return to your haven, and get on your computer. You should have a new menu, “ssh”, which allows you to remotely access the Fu Syndicate using your new credentials. Do that and use it to remotely free Barabus and delete their data.
You should shortly after get a call from Gary in your haven congratulating you and giving you the next clue on your quest for the sarcophagus.
